Brett Lawrie is making friends on Twitter again

May 9, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

Near the end of last season Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie got so worked up about Twitter that he announced he was quitting, only to rejoin almost immediately.

Today he’s worked up again, no doubt because the Blue Jays are in last place at 13-22 and being decimated by injuries, and Lawrie decided to lash out:

#LetsGetThisThingg is one of my all-time favorite hashtags, if nothing else.

      Let’s get an update EB!

      • El Bravo - May 9, 2013 at 3:38 PM

        1. Murray Chass – Chass, a mere blogger, will give up his undeserved HOF vote, but only after attempting to vote in Jack Morris. Whether or not Morris deserves it is beside the point. He’s sticking it to all other HOF eligible players as a consequence. Total Chasshole move, bro.
        2. BBWAA – The Baseball Writers Association of America is a conglomerate of douchenozzles, many of which no longer write about baseball, but yet still have more say on the subject than the biggest baseball fans out there. A total clusterdouche. As opposed to entering each voter as a DN individually, which would be unfair to the non-DNs within the group, the entire organization will be granted passage into douchenozzledom as a whole.
        3. Todd Helton – For getting a DUI while going out briefly to buy lottery tickets. Lottery tickets? Yes, lottery tickets.
        4. Mark Grace – DUI work release is too lenient
        5. Jeff Loria – Letter to Miami blaming everyone but himself…and sticking to his story.
        6. Drake Britton – Red Sox minor leaguer that got a DUI while driving 111 mph in a 45 and then showing the officer his debit card instead of his license.
        7. Nick Swisher – recording some video in Spring Training where he looks douchey. Good enough for me.
        8. Rob Dibble – for being Rob Dibble (see Nick Swisher criteria). Also was fired after just ten games as a high school coach.
        9. Hawk Harrelson – for knowing nothing about sabermetrics or the use of advanced analytics in baseball, but feels the need to spout his uninformed opinions anyway.
        10. Carlos Quentin – for getting plunked by Zack Greinke and then breaking his collarbone as “retaliation”, all the while knowing he leans into 2/3 of the pitches he sees and gets hit more than anyone in the MLB.
        11. Alex Rodriguez – For cheating, lying, getting caught, admitting it, cheating, lying, getting caught, lying, then attempting to buy the evidence to not get caught for real this time.
        12. Yovani Gallardo – DUI. 0.22 breathalyzer…’nuff said.
        13. Jonathan Papeldouche – for railing off about Obama takin’ our guns (aka not having any f’ing clue what he’s talking about).
        14. Rex Ryan – For whining about the Orioles not switching a home game to a road game so that the Ravens could open the season at home. Basically, for being Rex Ryan and making it into an HBT post is enough for me.
        15. Tom Garfinkel – Padres President and CEO who called Greinke “Rain Man”. Pretty insensitive comment, bro.
        16. Jeff Loria – A double douchenozzle – The first of its kind. Passan notes, “Loria insisted Fernandez, the team’s prized 20-year-old rookie, pitch in the first half of the doubleheader at frigid Target Field instead of the scheduled Nolasco because the day game was expected to be warmer. The temperature at Fernandez’s first pitch (38 degrees) was actually colder than at the beginning of Nolasco’s start (42 degrees).”
        17. Angel Hernandez – For blowing a HR call and then, after review, blowing it again (and the MLB agrees).
        18. Brett Lawrie – for whining on twitter about his team sucking and then using a stupid hashtag. “All u people who chirp when things don’t go good have never done anything in pro sport .. Ever .. So shut ur mouths #LetsGetThisThingg #jays”

    I’m still happy the Brewers got rid of this guy.

    • proudlycanadian - May 9, 2013 at 5:19 PM

      I assure you that he is also happy that the Brewers traded him.

      • brewcrewfan54 - May 9, 2013 at 9:20 PM

        And that’s fine. I’m not knocking his talent, I’m knocking what tje Brewers and things like this describe as an attitude problem.

    • mathieug79 - May 10, 2013 at 10:03 AM

      How Rickie Weeks working out for you? then again .188 avg is better than a 175 avg lol

      • duckhntr - Jun 5, 2013 at 2:45 PM

        What does rickie weeks have to do with any of those comments? He has never had an attitude problem, most fans in Milwaukee want him gone. I was at two games over memorial day weekend and he was booed and heckled worse then the opposing teams. When he finally got a hit the place went crazy like they just won a playoff game.

    People who say stuff like “don’t go good” are never very intelligent. Ever. So shut ur mouth.

    • paperlions - May 9, 2013 at 3:55 PM

      Well, sometimes, they are 4 years old. Some 4 yr olds are pretty clever.

  5. rickdobrydney - May 9, 2013 at 3:37 PM

    Yeah, Lawrie is a total jerk —- You have only to view him in action for a day or two to deduce this simple fact. All that false hustle crap — from a guy who is hitting .175……

    • proudlycanadian - May 9, 2013 at 5:20 PM

      I assure you that Lawrie does not give a damn about your opinion.

  6. abaird2012 - May 9, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    Gritty, though.

  7. paperlions - May 9, 2013 at 3:56 PM

    Yeah, he’s a bit of an idiot….and yeah, he is a bit over rated (at least his play hasn’t come anywhere close to matching expectations since his fantastic cup of coffee in 2011)….but the kid is really fun to watch play. He goes all out all the time, 100% emotional and physical investment 100% of the time.

    • proudlycanadian - May 9, 2013 at 4:57 PM

      He is extremely good in the field. He missed most of spring training due to an injury so he is a bit behind in his timing at the plate. He was also injured last season due to an injury that resulted from hustle.

      • paperlions - May 10, 2013 at 7:35 AM

        I know. I said “a bit” over-rated. The D is good, but the power he showed that fall hasn’t come back yet.

      • proudlycanadian - May 10, 2013 at 8:12 AM

        It was fun watching both Lawrie and Longoria make great plays at third base yesterday.

  8. joshfrancis50 - May 9, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    Sweet Tweet, Brah.

  9. burm61 - May 9, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    Yeah I remember when Blue Jays fans told me and the rest of the Indians fans on opening day how they were a WS favorite… that worked out well for the Toronto Marlins.

  10. largebill - May 9, 2013 at 7:05 PM

    He will bust out a 3 for 5 night tonight with 2 SB’s.

    Um, what’s that? Actually, yes, he is on my fantasy team. Why do you ask?

  11. riverdoc11 - May 9, 2013 at 7:09 PM

    Canada’s answer to Ryan Lochte ! Dumber than a sack of acorns.

    • proudlycanadian - May 9, 2013 at 8:43 PM

      Frankly, Canadians do not give a damn about your input.

      • dirtyharry1971 - May 9, 2013 at 11:57 PM

        Good with that said baseball is an American game, go follow hockey!!

  12. djpostl - May 9, 2013 at 8:46 PM

    Because Lord knows nobody who didn’t play pro sports can’t possibly have any idea of what it’s like to face adversity.

    Dude is just a fucking mouth-breathing idiot.

  13. dirtyharry1971 - May 9, 2013 at 10:26 PM

    well it doesnt really matter anyway i mean how many people did he offend here? All 8 bluejay fans that are known to exist? big deal

  14. yankees218 - May 10, 2013 at 12:46 PM

    Decimated by injuries? Oh please, don’t even get me started…
